Are you ready to hit the barre? Unique to other forms of fitness, barre exercises consist mostly of isometric (stationary) movements at high repetitions that blend techniques from ballet, yoga, and Pilates. This combination challenges the body while keeping the brain stimulated. Each exercise is designed to strengthen the core, boost balance, improve posture, and enhance your overall physique.
The following barre-inspired workout can be performed from the comfort of your home. You’ll need a sturdy chair, railing, or countertop. Ideally, these items should be located near or in front of a mirror, so you can watch your form. If your muscles tremble by the end of each set, that’s normal and expected — embrace the shake!
Remove your shoes prior to starting this program.
